A Sentence Per Picture

I had fun doing this type of post in February, so I’m back to do it in March! Here’s some pictures of our life lately, each described in one sentence!

How Are You?

How is everyone doing? I hope this post finds you healthy and happy. We’re doing just fine over here in the Zottola household. We are healthy, we have food, a roof over our heads, and we’ve been able to connect with our families and church family via technology. God. is. good.

I’m just popping in to share some photos and thoughts from our life lately.

Some fun activities we’ve been doing while hanging out at home with Sadie girl:

  • Playing with play dough
  • Using re-usable stickers
  • Coloring and drawing
  • Baking and cooking
  • Taking walks around the neighborhood
  • Reading books
  • Chasing each other around the house (though this probably should stop because Sadie fell yesterday and almost bit through her lip… it was quite the bloody mess!!)
  • Playing with toys
  • Watching sign language videos
  • Filming vlogs
  • FaceTiming with friends and family

I baked double chocolate cookies with a bar of Lindt dark chocolate and they have been such a treat. I based the recipe off of this one. Also lots of sourdough action happening around here.

We’ve been staying positive and praying a lot. Like many others, Jimmy is currently out of work. We are making the best of it by trusting that God will take care of the situation, giving thanks for our health, and enjoying the extra time together as a family ❤

Sadie is always a source of joy for us, but especially so lately! She’s just so innocent and sweet and a huge blessing in our lives. Seeing her smile just lights up my day.

Last but not least, vlogging has been a fun distraction and a way to document this unique time in our lives. I’ve never vlogged on a Sunday before, so it was a fun little project while we hung out at home this weekend!


How are you doing?
